The gallery first opened its door on May 25 1927. It is a premier art gallery and is seen as a cultural landmark in Lincoln. Over the past 90 years, the gallery has offered to visitors the chance to enjoy the culture and art Lincoln has to offer.

The gallery has displayed work by local, national and international artists in exclusive shows, permanent displays and touring exhibitions.

Caroline Ward, site coordinator, said: “We’re very proud of what the gallery has achieved in the last 90 years, and this is a celebration of its past, but also a really exciting moment as we look to our future too. We’re committed to supporting homegrown Lincolnshire talent and also bringing national and international art to local people. We’ve had works by Manet, Picasso, Dali, Warhol to name but a few.

“This evening will look back further than our recent years to reveal the moments in history that have brought us to where we are now. It’s unmissable for art fans in Lincolnshire.”
